At the moment, we don’t understand to what extent our advancement depends on the advancement of the world. This will be revealed gradually and we will feel our obligation towards the world. The baby is given to its parents, not in order to make them happy and to have something to play with, but so that they will take care of him and worry about him all the time. This responsibility also becomes enjoyable and fun since love changes from a great responsibility to a desired privilege.
We have begun a new era and the world wants to advance, but doesn’t know to where, and so its despair grows from day to day, and we feel its helplessness. This helps us advance. Actually Kabbalists in the past had much more difficult times when they didn’t see any changes in the world and no results of their work. We, however, were given this very special opportunity.
A married couple that has no children suffers greatly. Sometimes the connection between the two becomes so tight that they decide to live for it, but in fact, only children turn a couple into a family.
So if we worry about the world, we will become the parents that have a baby and it will tighten the connections among us. It will bring us success in everything we yearn for.
In order to do that, we have to study and improve our method. Everyone must become a lecturer, a teacher, or an organizer and thus we will advance. If we don’t worry about people, then there is no way we will advance. The Creator doesn’t need our advancement by itself, it is the desires of the seven billion that He needs, and so we have to work for them.
